26.12.2013 - Merry Xmas!

11.12.2013 - Nu Hardware Update (are we in the 80's again?!?)

1.12.2013 - Working through the backlog

  • I'm making a concerted effort to get through my to do pile and the notes people have left me scattered around the interwebs :)
  • Huge shout out of Matt Stritenberger this update, who put in some real effort and research time and cleared out a load of my "unknown's", great to see the back of some of these.
  • I've updated the sites protection against bots, scraping, leechers and other such bad behaviour which were on the verge of causing my (very patient) hosting company to pull the plug on the site, hopefully legitimate users are not affected, if you are drop me an email or a note on my facebook page.
  • The reason this is necessary is that this site is on shared hosting, and I'm very much skirting the edge of what you can get away with on a shared server nowadays... This is a non-profit site and the 1 advert I use up top just about pays for the hosting (hardly anyone clicks adverts nowadays :/ ). If I was forced to move to a dedicated server then it would mean I'd have to pay considerably (about 10x) more, which would mean that I would be forced to at least increase the ad presence on the site, something I've avoided as I don't like ads and this is still my "hobby site".
  • Something that might help in this regard is someone to provide some sql cacheing expertise, if anyone has any decent experience in this area please let me know.

  • Added screenshot to Pong on Atari Discrete Hardware, thanks to gregf.
  • Added cabinet blueprint to Crossfire on Atari Discrete hardware, thanks to gregf.

23.11.2013 - All Your Base.

21.2.2013 - Server move and other stuff

  • You may have noticed things going a bit weird a week ago with some down time, then some weird messages, this was due to a server move which had newer software and hissy fits were thrown.
    It should all be fine and dandy now hopefully.

  • I have a huge pile of outstanding stuff to go through, I really should get around to it sometime...must finish Borderlands 2 first though!
